my grandmother lives on manchester road, and has never had any other channels above channel four. we tried having her sky installed but could not get a signal, then had to resort to buying a digital tv and guess what,after this big switch over she still only has channels 1-4 i think its a disgrace and she still has to pay a tv licence fee.

Lisa Thomas: So far, only the BBC digital services have launched at the Cop Hill transmitter. ITV1 and Channel 4 still only broadcast in analogue. They will go digital on the 21st.

You need to ensure that the digital TV is correctly picking up BBC Three on channel 7, BBC Four on channel 9, CBBC on 70, CBeebies on 71, BBC News on 80, BBC Parliament on 81, and the radio stations in the 700s. If so, you should be OK when the second stage occurs on the 21st. Work at Cop Hill should be completed by 9am.

Do note that Cop Hill will be a 'Freeview Light' transmitter, providing only the Public Service multiplexes. See Will there ever be more services on the Freeview Light transmitters? | ukfree.tv - independent free digital TV advice for more information. If you provide a full postcode we can check whether a fuller service from Emley Moor is possible.

Not being able to get satellite TV is unusual, but can happen if you don't have a clear view of the sky to the south-east. The satellites actually orbit above eastern Africa, over the equator.

Channel 5 analogue was very restricted in what frequencies were available, and was only available at larger sites, typically at lower power than the other four channels. Digital services originally launched wherever there was space, trying to maximize the population covered from as few sites as possible. The analogue switch-off is required to extend digital services, in order to free up the channels.
